Are they the same thing? you see both terms batted about by fitness types all over the internet “improve your flexibility and mobility” but flexibility and mobility are actually different.
So, what is the difference between mobility and flexibility?
I will start with flexibility, which is the ability for a muscle to stretch when needed, as an example, your favourite pair of PJ’s or joggers, if the waistband is stretchy, it is flexible or it has seen better days and is no longer stretchy, or worse case it snaps, then it is inflexible, the same can happen with muscles. Therefore, flexibility is important, to help keep your muscles supple and help from sustaining injuries.
